Charles A. Story was born in Westchester County, 
N. Y., in 1837. He was related to the Story family 
of Massachusetts. 

He served his country during the War of the 
Kebellion, under the command of General Grant, 
rising from Second Lieutenant to Lieutenant Col- 
onel. He participated in many of the hottest bat- 
tles of the war, and was wounded at the battle of 
the wilderness. 

Since the close of the war he had practiced law 
in Chicago, and during the more recent years he 
had discovered and developed the now world-fa- 
mous Science of Spelling for the school children, 
which has been so highly commended by the peo- 
ple of Chicago, and has stood the test of practical 
experiment so well that Congress is now consider- 
ing an appropriation of five million dollars from 
the U. S. Treasury to intj-oduce the Science and 
make it The American System of Spelling. 

Major Story died September 26, 1907.

PREFACE 



This book contains the Universal 
Alfabet and the rules and principles 
of the Science of Spelling. It is pre- 
sented to the world as a substitute for 
all other alfabets and forms of spelling, 
so that there will eventually be but one 
universal alfabet and method of spell- 
ing. In it will be found a table of word- 
models and syllable-models for spelling 
all of the words of one syllable and all 
of the syllables or small parts of longer 
words that are heard in all languages 
spoken. 

It contains all necessary rules for 
spelling, and these rules are as exact 
as the rules of arithmetic and as easy 
to learn as simple addition. It also 
contains all of the 5,500 words of one 
syllable that are found in the Eng- 
lish language, and they follow each 
other in the order of succession they 
will have in the new fonetic dictionary 
when completed. These 5,500 short 
words are spelled in the new fonetic 
way, in accordance with the rules of 
science. The same words are also 
printed and spelled in the present form, 
side by side with the new and better 
way. This arrangement makes the one 
column an exact and accurate key to 
the pronunciation of all the words 
found in the other column, affording 
a good comparison of the new and per- 
fect system with the old chaotic spell- 
ing which has been so long in use. 

The new and universal system dis- 
cards all of the silent letters. It is the 
net result of more than forty years of 
research, labor, and experiment, during 
which the system has been tested and 
found to be accurate and complete in 
more than forty languages. 

Inventions usually need a little per- 



sonal explanation in order that the stu- 
dent may learn the details more rapidly, 
but this is the plainest, easiest, and 
most perfect system to learn and un- 
derstand. Children should have this 
system explained to them verbally, but 
the older student can master it from 
the fonetic primer. This system can 
be used as a better method of helping 
the children to the mastery of the old 
spelling and in much less time than 
heretofore. They can master both sys- 
tems, the new and the old, and save two 
whole years of time and labor in the 
school life of every child. Such a sav- 
ing in the primary education of all 
children means a saving of one hun- 
dred millions of dollars yearly in the 
maintenance of our schools. We could 
then furnish the child with a still bet- 
ter education by expending this money 
for the higher branches of study. Why 
I should children be compelled to toil 
I and struggle for 1,200 days in the pub- 
j lie and private schools in learning a 
I certain amount of spelling when they 
can easily accomplish the same result 
in sixty days ? 

The author earnestly requests that 
all who are interested in the science 
of language shall give their most criti- 
cal attention to the system here pre- 
sented. He is confident that philolo- 
gists will agree that it is founded on 
correct principles and on rules that can 
be adhered to invariably, and he is 
absolutely certain that those eminent 
scholars who are interested in simpli- 
fied spelling will recognize in the sys- 
tem the goal for which they are striv- 
ing; but which they can scarcely reach, 
with the present slow processes, by 
many decades of argument and toil,

OF 

UNIVERSAL WORD-MODELS 



The Author has invented this table of 

WORD-PATTERNS OF WORD-MODELS fOF Stu- 
dents to LOOK AT when they are learning 
to spell ; so that the eye helps the ear 
in the construction of all words of one 
syllable. 

The work of spelling a syllable is ex- 
actly and precisely the same kind and 
quality of work that is required in 
spelling a short word, or a word of one 
syllable; and this fact being proved 
and well established, it follows, as a 
mathematical fact, that the table of 
word-patterns, or word-models, can 
also be used by the students to look 
AT as syllable-patterns or syllable- 
models when they are spelling words 
of two, three, four or more syllables. 

This table of word and syllable 
models is the net result and consolida- 
tion of about twenty-two smaller dis- 
coveries and inventions. Some of these 
smaller discoveries consisted in finding 
the limits of sound-combinations that 
are heard in human speech. 

1. It is impossible to spell a word of 
one syllable with less than one letter, 
and that one letter must always be A 

VOWEL OR A compound VOWEL. TMs is 
the SMALLEST AND LOWEST LIMIT. 

2. It is impossible for any human 
being to pronounce a word of one 
syllable containing more than seven 
SOUNDS. Every short word must con- 
tain SEVEN or LESS THAN SEVEN SOUNDS, 

and ONE of the seven, or less than seven, 
must always be a vowel or a compound 
VOWEL. This is the largest and high- 
est LIMIT. 

One sound being the smallest limit, 
and seven sounds being the largest 
limit, it follows that all the words of 
human beings are made up of speech 
sounds, somewhere between one and 
seven in number, somewhere between 
these two limits, inclusive. 

Every word of one syllable must con- 
tain ONE vowel, or compound vowel, and 
no MORE TH\N ONE; and every syllable 
must contain the same; so that there 
will always be as many vowels in a 
word as there are syllables in a word; 
no more and no less. 

No human being can, in any word of 
one syllable, sound more than three 
consonants before the vowel; and 
when there are three consonants before 
the vowel, no human being can sound 
more than three consonants after the 
vowel, in the same syllable, so this 
makes up the highest limit, — three or 
LESS THAN THREE before the vowel, and 



three or LESS THAN THREE AFTER the 

vowel, and never more than a total 

OF SEVEN. 

Now between one and seven, inclu- 
sive, the consonants can be placed on 
the left or the right of the vowel in just 
SIXTEEN positions, and no more than 
sixteen. The arithmetic confirms this 
assertion. 

All of the WORDS of one syllable that 
human beings are capable of pronoun- 
cing in any language, and all of the 
syllables in the longer words can be 
spelled correctly by following the one 
or the other, or several, of these six- 
teen models. And this makes the table 

COMPLETE FOR ALL NATIONS, AND ALL 
LANGUAGES, FOB ALL TIME. 

If we let "o" stand for any vowel or 
every vowel, and "x" stand for any con- 
sonant or every consonant, the table 
OF MODELS for Spelling short words or 
SYLLABLES will be readily understood, 
and we have only to place the letters 
after each other, as indicated by the 

MODEL.

nant, or half -nasal. The 
half-vowel placed after 
it suggests its name. 
This letter shows that the 
vowel standing before it 
is sounded "nasally," as 
in the French bon ton, 
mon, son, pain and 
maison.

Letter No. 40 and letter No. 42 are 
aspirates, not very extensively used in 
any language ; they will be presented 
at the proper time. 



COMPOUND vowels. 

All compound vowels are composed 
of TWO simple vowels and are used and 
handled the same as vowels. ■> 

The five compound vowels that are 
extensively used in England and 
America are compounded or amalga- 
mated as follows :— 

(0-he=c.) (a-f£=(a.) (a)-fe:=(B.) 
(o-fa)=ai.) (i+a)=ui.) 

They are sounded as in the words :

buy, rye, lie, fine, rhyme, 
oil, toy, boy, joy, soil, void, 
noise, boil, foil, coin, quoit.

There are six short and easy rules 
for spelling all the words and all the 
SYLLABLES that are heard in the speech 
of human beings. Here is rule first: 

E^'Name each letter in the word, 
and then pronounce the word; or name 
each letter in the syllable, and then 
pronounce the syllable."^ 

This Rule First can be easily used 
and applied in spelling about one 
half of all the short words and sylla- 
bles heard and spoken in England an-l 
America. 



WORDS OF THE FIRST CLASS 



Let us learn these six letters : 

First Vowel = O 

Fourth Vowel = a 

Eighth Vowel = a 

Ninth Vowel = 

Fourteenth Vowel = U 

Forty-Third Vowel = C 
Each of these very short words of 

THE FIRST CLASS is Spelled with ONE 

letter, after model number one ; and 
of course that one letter must always 
be A VOWEL or a compound vowel. 

Rule : 3;^" When children are learn- 
ing to spell, place the pattern, or mod- 
el, where they can all see it. The 
eye helps the ear.°^

STORY'S FONETIC PRIMER 



In addition to the five or six very 

SHORT WORDS OF THE FIRST CLASS here 

given, there are, in the English and 
American Unabridged Dictionaries 
about 25,000 very short syllables, or 
very small parts of longer words, that 
are spelled after the very same model, 
number one. 

REMARK NUMBER ONE 

In about ninety-five cases out of 
every hundred, in spoken language, the 
indefinite article "a," when standing be- 
fore a word beginning with a conso- 



nant, is not pronounced like the fourth 
vowel a; but much lighter, exactly the 
sound of vowel number 14; and if we 
are to spell it as it is pronoOnced, it 
must be spelled, written and printed 
with the HALF-VOWEL, the obscure, half- 
sounded VOWEL, number 14; thus : 

U man, u boy, u girl, u book, u horse, 
u bird, u cent, u dollar, u day, u week, 
u month, u chance, u hurry, u rush, u 
field, u meadow, u new hat; but when it 
is ACCENTED, or heavily ebiphasized, it 
should be spelled, written and printed, 
with the fourth vowel a. 



WORDS OF THE SECOND CLASS 



There are 110 very small words of 
the second class found in the English 
and American dictionaries, not count- 
ing the names of the 25 consonants, 
found in the perpendicular tabulation 
of the Alfabet; which would make a 
total of 135. They are all spelled with 
TWO letters. The formula pattern or 
MODEL is XO, which means that the 
first letter in this class of very small 
WORDS is always a consonant and the 
last letter is always a vowel. Until fur- 
ther notice we will use rule first for 
spelling the words under the head of 
science, and have them placed on the 
left-hand side of the column or the page; 
and place the old spelling of the same 
words on the right-hand side, under 
the head of chaos as follows:

AND SCIENCE OF SPELLING 



9 



In addition to the 110 very short 
WORDS of the second class here given, 
the unabridged dictionaries contain 
75,000 to 80,000 very short syllables, 
that are spelled in the same way and 
after the same pattern as model num- 
ber TWO. 

REMARK NUMBER TWO 

When the definite article the comes 
before a word beginning with a vowel, 
it should be spelled, written and print- 
ed with the sixth vowel £; thus : 

He air, he aim, he ice, he ape, he an- 
vil, h£ apple, h£ Qgg, he edge, he owner, 
he ode, he idea, he awful, he hour, he 
earth. But when it comes before a 
word beginning with a consonant, it 
should be spelled, written and printed 
with the fourteenth vowel,— the half- 
vowel,— the obscure vowel,— the half- 
sounded VOWEL, thus : — hu boy, hu girl, 
hu man, hu day, hu pay, hu dime, hu 
dollar, hu gold, hu silver, hu sun, hu 
moon, hu foe, hu law, hu book, hu Bible. 
No other reason need be given for this 
remark than to state the well-known 
fact that in spoken language the people 



nearly all pronounce the word in that 
way. Let us spell and write and print 
as we pronounce. 

REMARK NUMBER THREE 

The word too, meaning " also," and 
the adverb too, as in too long, too short, 
and the numeral and number two, 
should always be spelled, written and 
printed tco, with the twelfth vowel co, 
because they are pronounced that way; 
but when the "to" means " toward," or 
when it is a part of the verb, and the 
other part of the verb begins with a 
consonant, it should be spelled, writ- 
ten and printed with the fourteenth 
VOWEL,— the half vowel,— the obscure 
VOWEL, — the indefinite vowel, — the 
half-sounded vowel, thus: — tu be, tu 
see, tu go, tu do, tu buy, tu die, tu 
know, tu mow, tu fear, tu shine, tu cry, 
tu fall, tu run. When the following 
word, or the other part of the verb, 
begins with a vowel, the word "to" 
should be spelled, written and printed 
with the twelfth vowel oo, thus :— tco 
answer, tcD add, tcD aim, tcD ache, too eat, 
tcD own, too owe, too all, too any, too in- 
vent, too urge, too act. When these 
words are spoken they are generally 
sounded or pronounced in that way. 



WORDS OF THE THIRD CLASS 



In the English language there are 
about 55 VERY short words of the third 
CLASS, not counting the old names of 
the consonants. Each- one of these lit- 
tle words is spelled with two letters. 
The pattern or model is OX, which 
means that the first letter is always a 
VOWEL, or a compound vowel, and the 
last letter is always a consonant. Con- 
tinue to use RULE FIRST.

In addition to the 55 very short 
WORDS of the third class, here given, the 
student will find in the great diction- 
aries and vocabularies about 40,000 or 

45,000 VERY SHORT SYLLABLES, Or VERY 
SMALL PARTS OF LONGER WORDS, that 



10 



STORY'S FONETIC PRIMER 



are spelled precisely and exactly the 
SAME, and after the very same model, 

NUMBER THREE. 



REMARK NUMBER FOUR 



Alfabets and scientific systems of 
spelling must be made for young chil- 
dren because young children must 
learn them. No generation of adults ever 
learned an alf abet or a system of spell- 
ing. If they did not learn the alfabet 
and the system of spelling vv^hile they 
were children, they did not learn them 
at all. Learning to spell, to write and 
to read are the proper and legitimate 
occupations of children. These, col- 
lectively, form the children's trade, 
their business, the employment and oc- 
cupation of their early years at school 
— the basis — the beginning, the founda- 
tion of ALL EDUCATION. 



And since small children must do 
the work, the tools and materials must 
be adapted to small hands— must be 
plain, simple, distinct, and easy for 
them to understand and light for them 
to handle. 

Small children must learn to spell 
small words first, little, short words of 
one SYLLABLE, made up with only one, 

TWO or THREE LETTERS EACH. This Is 

the dictate of plain common sense, in 
accord with the laws of nature. 

The said small, short words must be 
arranged into classes, or groups, so 
that when a little child has learned to 
spell a dozen words of a given class, he 
can spell all the words of that class in 
THE same way; and the rules given to 
the child for him to use in spelling one 
WORD, must apply to all the words of 
THE same class. Any plan that fails to 
accomplish this does not deserve even 
the name of system ; it is simply chaos. 



WORDS OF THE FOURTH CLASS 



We have already learned the use of 
the first three models, and how to spell 
three classes of very small words, 
made up of one or two letters only. 

We are now about to learn how to 
use model number four and how to 
spell all of the eleven hundred and 
seventy words of the fourth class, 
which will lead us into the heart of this 
Science of Spelling. Each and every 
word of the fourth class is spelled 
with three letteRwS. We shall here 
present the entire list of three-letter- 
words that are heard in our language ; 
because these short and easy words 

OPEN the gates of THE SCIENCE OF 

SPELLING to the student. 

It will be a light and easy task to 
master the 1,170 English and American 
shortWORDS OF THE FOURTH CLASS, 
and the student will take fresh cour- 
age when he is told that there are, in 
the unabridged dictionaries of our lan- 
guage, about 155,000 syllables— per- 
haps 160,000 SYLLABLES— that are spelled 
precisely in the same, exact, easy and 
correct w\y, on the very same model 
number four. 

As there are nineteen vowels and 
compound vowels used in our language, 
we will break the long list of fourth- 



class-words into as many subdivisions, 
for the convenience of the student. 

We shall now present the vowels in 
their serial order, one at a time, and 
in doing so shall present all the words 
in the language belonging to the 4th 
class involving the use of one vowel 
before passing to those of the 4th class 
requiring the use of any other vowel. 

' The student will soon discover that 
the INITIAL consonants, standing at the 
left hand side of each word, are also 
presented in their serial order, as 
they are numbered and appear in the 
table, beginning with number fifteen. 

The word formula, or word pattern, 
for all words of the 4th class, is xox; 
and this formula, or pattern, means 
that the first letter is always a conso- 
nant; that the second letter is always a 
vowel; that there is another consonant 
after the vowel; and that every word in 
the class is spelled with just three 
letters,— no more and no less. 

In the column headed Science the 
rules must be followed and the new 
NAMES of the letters must be used : but 
in the column marked Chaos the stu- 
dents will use the old letters, calling 
them as they do under the system now 
in use. 



AND SCIENCE OF SPELLING 



11 



THE FIRST VOWEL 



The first vowel represents the 
sound of o, as in rod, not, lock, doll, 
pond, rob. In the old system of spell- 
ing there are eight different ways of 
writing and printing this sound: 
o as in not au as in daunt 

a as in what ua as in guard 

ea as in heart ou as in hough 

e as in sergeant ow as in knowledge 
But, hereafter, the first vowel takes 
the place of all these, and must be 
used for that sound whenever and 
wherever it is heard. One letter for 
ONE sound; no more and no less.

THE SECOND VOWEL 



The SECOND vowel represents the 
sound of " a " as in bat, lad, pan, ran, 
rat, have. In the old system that par- 
ticular sound is written and printed in 

EIGHT DIFFERENT WAYS. 



a as in. at ea as in 

a-e " " rare e " " 

ai " " plaid ei " " 

au " " draught ua " "

Hereafter the second vowel "a" must 
be used in the place of all of those old 
combinations. A trained ear is a safe 
guide in spelling this long list of short 
words.

THE THIRD VOWEL 



The third vowel represents the sound 
of " u " as in bud, rub, hut, come, sun, 
one. In the existing method of spell- 
ing there are six different ways of 
writing and printing this sound : 
u as in up oe as in does 

o as in son ou as in young 

o-e as in love oo as in blood 

The third vowel takes the place of all 
of these and is used to represent that 
sound in all cases.

Six different sounds 

Such confusion coDSumes the stu- 
dents' time, overtaxes the memory, dis- 
courages effort, and destroys ambition. 

Let us examine these ancient stum- 
blingblocks just a little further: 

a as in what, wad, was 
a " " man, had, has 
a " "a 

a " " made, shade 
a " " ball, fall, all 

So a stands for some four or five sounds. 
And e has six sounds as follows : 

e as in me, he, we e as in elite, fete 
e " " bed, led, met e " " her, per 
e-e " " where, there e " " sergeant 

The combination ei has six sounds, 
as follows : 



ei as in heir 
ei " " deign

ei as m seize 
ei " " sleight 
ei ' 



heifer ei " " forfeit 
Even ie has four sounds, as follows 



ie as in friend 
ie " " brief 



le as m sieve 
ie " " die, lie 



So also ai has four sounds 



ai as in maid, laid 
ai " " plaid 



ai as in said

And ea has seven sounds, as follows 



ea as in beat, heat 
ea " " heart 
ea " " great 
ea " " bear, wear 



ea as in dead, head 
ea " " dear, hear 
ea " " heard 



There are only nineteen vowel and 
compound vowel sounds heard in the 
English and American language ; and 
nineteen letters — one letter for each 
SOUND— ought to take the place of all 
of the foregoing multitude of letters, 
and letter combinations, that discour- 
age and overwork the student.

THE FOURTEENTH VOWEL 



Strictly speaking, the fourteenth 
vowel is only a half-vowel, or a very 

OBSCURE vowel ; a vague AND INDEFINITE 

vowel ; or a half-sounced vowel. 

In our language this vowel is never 
accented, or specially emphasized. It is 
not used in English and American 
words of the fourth class. It is not 
strictly and properly used in English and 
American words of one syllable, when 
the same are slowly spoken, heavily 

ACCENTED, Or POSITIVELY PRONOUNCED; 

but it is very often and very properly 
used in a few of oar very common and 
VERY SMALL WORDS, wheu they are 
LIGHTLY or RAPIDLY SPOKEN, Thcse Very 
few and very short words — so lightly 
AND RAPIDLY SPOKEN — are among those 
most commonly used in conversation, 
and are very often repeated, — perhaps 
hundreds, or even thousands of times 
a day. 



In English words of two, three or 
more syllables, however, it is properly 
used, and used more frequently than 
any other one of the nineteen vowels. 

It is heard in all the languages 
spoken by man ; and is more frequently 
used than any other one of the vowels, 
among all the nations of the earth. 

In the Romanic A If abet and the Eng- 
lish System of Spelling this half-sound 
is spelled, written, and printed in 
twenty different ways. These will be 
shown to the student elsewhere. 

E^ In writing this fourteenth vowel 
— this half-vowel — with pen or pencil, 
it NEED not be marked. It sliould be 
written just the same as the third vowel 
" u," except it should be made a little 
wider from left to right. ""^

NEW RULE FOR THE LETTER RE 



The letter re (R. r.) — letter number 
thirty-one — is the " chief of the tribe 
OF CONSONANTS." And here we present 
a new and universal rule in connec- 
tion with this letter. 

G^^Rule: Whenever any compound 
vowel stands before the letter re, in any 
SHORT WORD, or word of one syllable, 

the FOURTEENTH VOWEL, — the HALF- 
VOWEL,— the obscure vowel, — the half- 
sounded VOWEL must be placed between 

THEM."^ 



In accordance with this rule, the word: 
tcr becomes teur fcr becomes fcur 
dcr " dcur scr " scar 
per " pcur wcr " wciir 
bcr " bcur her " heur 
and so on all the way through the entire 
list. 

This rule does not change the pro- 
nunciation of these words, but makes 
them plainer, simpler, smoother and 
EASIER than they have ever been before, 

and ENTIRELY AND PERFECTLY REGULAR.

with the half-vowel inserted— after the 
compound vowel and before the re — are 
still counted and classed as words of

and always have been words of a 
syllable-and-a-half. 

This list adds thirteen short words of 
the FOURTH class to the foregoing 
ninety-three words, making a total of 
one hundred and six short words of the 
fourth class, with the compound vowel 
number forty-three, 04-£=C. 



LETTER NUMBER FORTY-NINE 



Letter number forty-nine stands 
for the compound vowel sound that is 
heard in boys, toil, choice, coin, noise, 
hoist. There are, comparatively, but 
few words in the English language in 
which this sound is used. 

The old methods had two ways of 
writing this sound : 

oi as in boil, oil; and oy as in boys, toys.

Letter number fifty-three, stands 
for the compound vowel sound that is 
heard in buoy, buoys, buoyed, buoyant. 

These words came into our language 
from the French. The method of 
spelling them came from the same 
source — that is to say, the words and 
the vowel sound heard in them and 
the method of spelling the same are all 
borrowed. But they have been bor- 
rowed so long that the English lan- 
guage has acquired possession.

Under the antique system this sound 
was written in two ways : 

ou, as in doubt ow, as in down. 



But the combination ou is used to 
represent seven other sounds besides 
this one : and ow is used to represent 
TWO OTHER sounds besidcs this one.

AND SCIENCE OF SPELLING

ADVICE TO STUDENT 



Every student who has spelled these 

1,170 WORDS OF THE FOURTH CLASS, Using 

the good old rule of our fathers and 
mothers, — Rule First — is now earnestly- 
advised to READ RULE SECOND Very Care- 
fully and then spell all of the same 1,170 
words of the fourth class in accord- 
ance with that Rule Second. 

After this has been done, the student 
is advised to read rule third, very 
carefully, and then spell all of the very 
same 1,170 words in accordance with 
that Rule Third also. 



After this has been faithfully done, 
the student should carefully read rule 
fourth — limited, and go on with the 
spelling :— beginning with the little 
three-letter words of the fifth class. 

(!t^"Be sure to use rule fourth— lim- 
ited, in all cases, hereafter, where it is 
possible to do so, in connection with 
any of the other rules, because Rule 
Fourth — Limited, always has the 
" right of way.""^ 



RULE SECOND FOR SPELLING 



Blend a consonant and a vowel 

If there is only one consonant stand- 
ing before the vowel, then this is the 
rule: 

'l^^ Any consonant standing before 
any vowel, in the same syllable, or the 
same short word, may be blended with 
the vowel by sounding the consonant 
and NAMING the vowel in the same 
breath, as if the two letters were but 
one; then name each of the remaining 
letters, one, two, or three; and then 
pronounce the syllable, or the short 
word. "^ 

If there are two or three consonants 
standing before the vowel, then this is 
the rule; 

C^" Name each of the consonants, 
except the last one, that may be stand- 
ing before the vowel; then blend that 
LAST one with the vowel, by sounding 



the consonant and naming the vowel 
in the same breath, as if the two letters 
were but one; then name each of the 
remaining letters — if any — and then 
pronounce the syllable or the short 
word.""^! 

This rule may be considered as an 
amendment to or an improvement 
upon Rule First, as well as a reduction, 
abridgment, or condensation of Rule 
First. 

It simplifies the hard work of spelling 
in hundreds of thousands of syllables 
and many hundreds of short words, or 
words of one syllable. 

This method of putting two letters 
together and sounding them as if the 
two letters were but one is a short but 
very important step in the direction 

of LEARNING TO READ! 

to-p, ba-k, wu-n, ka-k, qe-t, ti-n, ra-t, 
se-1, w a-r, n-uiz. 



RULE THIRD FOR SPELLING 



Blend a vowel and consonant 

If there are no consonants standing 
before the vowel, then this is the rule : 

E^" Any vowel standing before any 
consonant, in the same syllable, or the 
same short word, may be blended with 
the consonant by naming the vowel 
aad sounding the consonant, in the 
same breath, as if the two letters were 



but one; then name each of the remain- 
ing letters — one or two— and then 
pronounce the syllable or the short 
word."^! 

If there are consonants standing be- 
fore the vowel, — one, two, or three — 
then this is the rule: 

^^^ Name each of the consonants — 
one, two, or three —that may be stand- 
ing before the vowel, in any syllable, or 



24 



STORY'S FOXETIC PRIMER 



any short word ; then blend the vowel 
and the following consonant together, 
by NAMING the vowel and sounding the 
consonant in the same breath, as if the 
TWO letters were but one ; then name 
each of the remaining letters, if any; 
and then pronounce the syllable, or the 
short word.^^g:;] 

This rule is another and further re- 
duction, abridgment or condensation of 
Kule First. 

This Rule Third still further simpli- 
fies and shortens the work of spelling, 
in HUNDREDS of thousands of syllables, 
and many hundreds of short words, or 



words of one syllable. It is also an- 
other short, plain and easy step toward 
reading : 

t-op, b-ak, w-un, k-ak, q-et, t-in, r-at, 
s-el, w-ur, n-uiz. 

\l^'" Whenever the letter re (r) fol- 
lows after any one of the fourteen 
SIMPLE vowels, in the same syllable or 
the same short word, it is advisable to 
blend THE two LETTERS— the vowel and 
the re~in accordance with this Rule 
Third.''^ Like these : 

k-or, d-ar, f-nr, h-ir, w-ar, p-er, f-ar, 
f-ar, d-ir. 



RULE FOURTH— LIMITED FOR SPELLING 



There are a few consonant combina- 
tions in our own language, and a few 
consonant combinations in many other 
languages, which, in order to make the 
spelling" plain, easy, distinct and rapid, 
seem to require the blending of two 
consonants, to be expressed or sounded 
as if the two were but one. 

In our language these close-fitting 
combinations are most frequently met 
with when the letter se (s) stands be- 



fore t, p, k and f, in the same syllable, 
or the same short word: 
st in stay, stow, sty, still, stack, stew, 
sp " spy, spoke, spin, spill, spool, spite, 
sk " sky, skill, scat, scow, school, score, 
sf " sphere, sphinx, spheride. 

After careful search through many 
languages, it was found that the follow- 
ing universal rule would throw light 
into all the dark places and remove all 
difficulties : 



RULE FOURTH— LIMITED 



BLENDING TWO CONSONANTS 

C^" Whenever any one of the last 
TWO pairs of consonants 

(x, ^, s, z,)* 
stands before any one of the first six 
pairs of consonants 

t, d, p, b, k, q, d, i, f , v, h, h, 
in the same syllable, or in the same 
short word, blend the two consonants 
together, by sounding the first and 
NAMING the second, in the same breath, 
as if the two letters were but one; then 
name each of the remaining letters, 
if any — ; and then pronounce the 
syllable, or the short word."^ 

This rule begins to work with words 
of the fifth class, that are spelled on 
MODEL NUMBER FIVE, as indicated in the 
Table of Models or Table of Patterus 
(XXO);and the rule may be applied 



easily and rapidly in spelling many 
words and a multitude of syllables, in 
nearly all of the remaining classes, 
down to and including words of the 
sixteenth class. 

This blending of two consonants may 
be done before the vowel or after the 
vowel; and sometimes both before 
AND after the vowei. 

\!^W Let this kind of blending be 
done, anywhere and everywhere, and 
ALWAYS, whenever the student finds a 
good chance.''^:!!] 

st-a, sp-a, st-e, st-c, sp-c, sk-c, sk-oi, 
st-m, sk-ui, a-sp, a-sk, cu-st, st-r-a, sp-r-a, 
sp-r-£, st-r-a, sk-w-a, st-r-e, sp-r-c, st-r-ui, 
sk-r-m, a-sp-s, a-sk-s, oi-st-s. 

The student will very soon discover 
that this rule for blending two con- 
sonants is only another slight abridg- 
ment or condensation of Rule First, 
similar to the other two rules for 
BLENDING, already learned; because 



AND SCIENCE OF SPELLING 



25 



Rule First is still used in full force, 
in all of those parts of the short word, 
or those parts of the syllable, that are 
NOT blended. 

Rule First is not laid aside nor abol- 
ished. 

This rule for blending two conso- 
nants simplifies and shortens the hard 
work in spelling in hundreds of thou- 
sands of syllables, and also several 
hundreds of short words, or words of 
one syllable. It is also one more short 
and easy step in the direction of good 
reading. 

It very frequently happens that Rule 
Fourth Limited and Rule Second can 
both be used in the sami? syllable or 
the same short word: st-ra, sp-ra, sp-r£, 
st-ra, sk-wa, st-re, sp-rc, st-rm, sk-rm. 

It also very frequently happens 
that Rule Fourth Limited and Rule 



Third can both be used in the same 

SYLLABLE, Or THE SAME SHORT WORD! 

st-ad, st-az, st-ed, st-ez, sp-cd, sp-cz, 
st-md, st-mz, sk-cz. 

[!I^° Let both kinds of blending be 
done, whenever it can be done dis- 
tinctly, easily and rapidly."^ 

This suggestion of two kinds of 
BLENDING, in the same syllable, or in

Total eighty-one short words' of the 

SIXTH CLASS. 



The Universal System does not de- 
scribe any of the vowels by the use of 
irrelevant adjectives, such as "broad a," 
" hard a," " broad o," " hard o," et cetera. 
Such adjectives are not merely inade- 
quate ; they are misleading and objec- 
tionable in nearly every way. 



WORDS OF THE SEVENTH CLASS 



There are about seven hundred and 
fifty English and American short words 
of the SEVENTH CLASS, Spelled upon 

MODEL NUMBER SEVEN (XXOX) which 

means that each word is spelled with 
FOUR LETTERS, that the first two letters 
are always consonants, the third letter 
is always a vowel or a compound vowel, 
and the last letter is always a conso- 
nant. Besides the 750 short words 
spelled upon this model, there are, in 
the great dictionaries, ' about forty 
THOUSAND SYLLABLES that are spelled 
in the same way, upon, the very same 

MODEL NUMBER SEVEN.

STORY'S FONETIC PRIMER 



WORDS OF THE EIGHTH CLASS 



Besides the seventeen hundred Eng- 
lish and Ameriean short words of the 
EIGHTH CLASS Spelled after model num- 
ber EIGHT (XOXX), there are also, in 
the latest unabridged dictionaries of 
our language, about one hundred and 

TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND SYLLABLES —per- 
haps one hundred and thirty thousand 
syllables — spelled in the same way, 

AFTER THE SAME MODEL, NUMBER EIGHT. 

Each and every one of this vast army 
of short words and syllables is spelled 
with FOUR LETTERS, the first one being 
always a consonant, the second one 
always a vowel or a compound vowel, 
and the last two always consonants. —

WORDS OF THE NINTH CLASS 



There are only a few English and

fact but a small number of these four- 
letter words can be found in any lan- 
guage. Model number nine (XXXO) 
means that there are always three con- 
sonants before the vowel or compound 
vowel :

WORDS OF THE TENTH CLASS 



Only a few words of the tenth class 
can be found in any language. Our own 
Anglo-Saxon tongue has only about 
eighteen of them. The vowel or com- 
pound vowel always comes first, and 
THREE consonants always follow; mak- 
ing a total of FOUR letters: 

The student, no doubt, has long ago 
observed that the classifying of words 
is governed and compelled by the use 
of the model.

ADVICE TO THE STUDENT 



The student is now informed that 
more than half of the hard work is 
done. More than half of the entire 
Science of Spelling is mastered. 

If the student has spelled all of the 

FIRST TEN CLASSES Of short WOrds, — 

spelled on the first ten models, — and 
has practiced, — as heretofore advised 
to practice, — using Rule Second for 
Spelling, Rule Third for Spelling, and 
Rule Fourth Limited for Spelling,— 
and has also practiced spelling sylla- 
bles, upon the Table of Models, as here- 
tofore advised, — he is now prepared 
to begin using Rule Fourth Unlimited 
for Spelling. Later he will use Rule 
Fifth, and last of all Rule Sixth. 



But right here and now, before trying 
to spell any more words, the student is 
advised to read very carefully, so as 
to explain to other students, all the 

RULES GOVERNING THE UNIVERSAL ALFA- 
BET AND THE SCIENCE OF SPELLING; and 

especially the rules for producing, 
SOUNDING AND NAMING all of the letters 
in the alfabet, and for tabulating the 
same, in accordance with the laws op 

NATURE. 

A few of the pages that immediately 
follow, will make all of these things 
plain. 



AND SCIENCE OF SPELLING 



39 



RULES GOVERNING THE UNIVERSAL ALFABET 
AND THE SCIENCE OF SPELLING 



These rules are plain, easy and uni- 
versal. 

They point out an unerring method 
of constructing and tabulating the Uni- 
versal Alfabet ; the naming of all of 
ITS LETTERS ; and all of the rules and 
DIRECTIONS that are required for spell- 
ing all of the words that ARE SPOKEN 
BY MAN. 

Any student, in any country, follow- 



ing these rules, will have very little 
difficulty in learning to spell the words 
OF HIS OWN LANGUAGE, or the words of 
any other language, that may distinctly 

FALL UPON his EAR. 

There are two very good rules for 
PRODUCING or SOUNDING all of the sim- 
ple vowels — and also for producing or 
SOUNDING all of the compound vowels. 
The first rule is for producing or 
sounding the first seven vowels. 



FIRST SEVEN VOWELS 



First rule: (!^* While your lips re- 
main in a natural or normal condition, 
—that is to say, not protruded, not 
pushed forward, not pouted, not puck- 
ered, nor depressed. "Open your mouth 
fairly wide, until the opening is nearly 
round, and then sound the first vow- 
el; same as in the vowel sound that is 
heard in rod, sod, hod, God, was, wad, 
on, not, got, pond, far, car, pa, ma; now 
close the lips and mouth just a little 
bit, and sound the second vowel; 
same as the vowel sound that is heard 
in had, bad, mad, man, can, ham, dare, 
fair, chair, fat, cat, at, add, air, am; now 
close the lips and mouth just a little 
bit more and sound the third vowel; as 
heard in but,nut,tub,bud,mud,run,rum, 
dumb, come, done, one, us, must, rust, 
and so on, closing the lips and mouth 
just a little bit more each time, and 



sound the fourth, fifth, sixth and 
seventh vowels."^!) 

Fourth vowel as in made, fade, raid, 
dale, fail, aim, wait, eight, aid, dame, 
rain, gale, blaze, ways. 

Fifth vowel, as in men, den, fed, led, 
dell, fell, bet, net, head, wed, yes, guess, 
hem, end. 

Sixth vowel as in me, he, we, she, see, 
need, feed, meal, peal, seem, eat, heat, 
seize, east. 

Seventh vowel, as in did, hid, lid, dim, 
him, sin, sing, ring, if, it, is, will, fill, ill, 
fist, in. 

By this time the student will find 
that his lips and mouth will not be en- 
tirely closed, but very nearly closed; 
and the first seven vowels, numbered 
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, will have been produced, 
OR sounded, in their natural oeder. 



SECOND SEVEN VOWELS 



Second rule : C^° "Open your mouth 
fairly wide, until the opening is nearly 
round, — the same as before, for the first 
seven vowels; — but now, this time, push 
the lips a little forward; protrude them, 
distend them, or pout them, or pucker 
them just a little; and while the mouth 
and lips are in this shape, sound the 
eighth vowel, same as the vowel sound 
that is heard in law, saw, laud, awe, all, 
call, bought, taught, fought, dawn, lawn, 
thawed, gone; now close the mouth and 
lips just a little bit, and sound the 



ninth vowel; same as the vowel sound 
that is heard in oh, owe, own, tone, 
mode, load, boat, rode, goes, foes, oats, 
coat, home; and so on, the same as 
before, closing the mouth and lips just 
a little bit more each time and sound 
the tenth, eleventh, twelfth, thir- 
teenth AND fourteenth VOWELS.""^ 

Tenth vowel, same as the vowel 
sound that is heard in fur, her, sir, 
myrrh, word, heard, bird, and in ac- 
cented syllables before r, as woRry, 
absuRD, MURder. In our language this 



40 



STORY'S FONETIC PRIMER 



sound is generally followed by r; but 
in many other languages it is sounded 
ALONE, without being followed by r, and 
may be followed by any consonant. 

Eleventh vowel. This sound can be 
learned better by selecting words from 
the German, or the French, such as 
slid, fiir, plus. It is heard in only one 
WORD in our language, — the word 
PRETTY, — as commonly pronounced by 
the masses of people,— where this sound 
is heard after the letter p, and before 
the letter r, in that word. 

Twelfth vowel, as heard in boot, 
loot, mood, rood, too, boo, who, shoe, 
room, move, moon, noon, ooze, whose. 

Thirteenth vowel, as heard in book, 
took, look, cook, wood, could, full, pull, 
wool, put, foot, poor, shook. 

Fourteenth vowel. This is only a 
half vowel, or a half sounded vowel,— 
never accented in our language,— and 
is generally so lightly sounded as to be 
called " indefinite," " obscure," " indis- 
tinct," or "uncertain;" but can be readily 
heard in the last* syllable of Sarah, 



Laura, Nora, awful, careful, hopeful, 
noble, people, bible, doctor, master, 
martyr, even, oven, welcome, autumn, 
union, minion, pigeon, righteous, relig- 
ious. This HALF- vowel, or obscure 
vowel, is heard and used about twice 
AS MANY TIMES as that of any other vowel 

sound IN ALL THE LANGUAGES OF THE 
EARTH. 

By the time the student has sounded 
the 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th 
vowels and has reached the 14th, his 
mouth and lips will be very nearly 

CLOSED. 

The two foregoing rules not only pro- 
duce the fourteen simple vowels, — and 
also all the compound vowels, — but 
what is more, and almost equally im- 
portant, they TABULATE the fourteen 
simple vowels in scientific order — the 
order in which nature designed to 
HAVE them tabulated, for the ready and' 
convenient use of all the people, 
speaking every language. 



RULES FOR NAMING VOWELS 



There is only one rule for naming all 
of the vowel symbols, or vowel letters : 

Ci^The SOUND of any vowel is the 
NAME of that vowel. Also the sound of 
any compound vowel is the name of 
that compound vowel. "^ 



In most cases the compound vowels 
are considered, handled, spoken of, and 
referred to as vowels — just plain vow- 
els —that stand for audible and com- 
plete SOUNDS. 



SCIENTIFIC TABULATION OF THE ALFABET 



A complete alfabet for all the world 
is always tabulated on five horizontal 
lines. This is the only tabulation that 

is STRICTLY SCIENTIFIC. 

On the FIRST line are tabulated the 
FOURTEEN SIMPLE VOWELS, in their regu- 
lar serial order, from number one to 
number fourteen. 

On the SECOND line are tabulated all 
of the twelve compound vowels that 



have their ending in e, as in me, he, we, 
be, see, she, key. 

On the THIRD line are tabulated all 
of the twelve compound vowels that 
have their ending in oo, as in too, boo, 
who, boot, boom, loot, mood, pool, woo. 

On the FOURTH and fifth lines are 
tabulated all of the twenty-eight conso- 
nants. 



ALFABET OF THE SCIENCE OF SPELLING 



Each letter is numbered, and its 
number never changes ; so that each 
and every letter in these tables has the 
SAME sound in one language that it has 
in another language, the same name, 
the same shape and the same number 
in ALL THE LANGUAGES OF THE 
EARTH. 

Letters not absolutely needed in the 
English language, when the same is 
properly and correctly spoken, are 
taken out of these tables and dashes 
or blanks left in their places. Thus it 
will be seen that there are twenty-one 



dashes or blanks in these tables, repre- 
senting twenty-one letters used in other 
languages, but not necessarily required 
in our own. Each nation takes out of 
the tables those letters which it does 
not need. Later on it will be found 
very convenient to fill some of these 
blank spaces with the letters which 
belong in them for convenience in 
quoting and printing strange words 
often heard among our own people. 
Few nations use more than 40 to 48 
sounds in their daily conversation.

as Proprietor.) 



RULE FOR NAMING CONSONANTS 



Only one rule is given for naming all 

of the TWENTY-FIVE COMPLETE CONSO- 
NANTS: 

1 

IW The SOUND of any consonant, fol- j 

lowed by e as in me, he, be, she, we, 1 

see, key, is the name of that conso- | 
nant. "^ 

This short and plain rule changes 
THE NAMES of nearly all of the old con- 
sonants—in fact ALL of them except 



t, d, p, b, V, and z, which happened to 
be CORRECTLY NAMED in the old alfabet. 

Only one general rule was given and 
followed in tabulating the twenty- 
eight CONSONANTS, and placing them in 
their proper positions: 

E:^ First of all place in line the six- 
teen consonants that are paired or 
MATED— that is to say, all the paired or 
MATED consonants are placed on the 



STORY'S FONETIC PRIMER 



fourth and fifth lines of the table al- 
most the same as in many of the short- 
hand or stenographic tables ; and, last 
of all, place in line the remaining twelve 
UNMATED consonants in the best possi- 
ble order for convenient use ; begin- 
ning with the principal consonant re (r). 



and ending with the "family of aspi- 
eates." '"^ 

Letter number 35 is the HALF-nasal 
and therefore is only a half-consonant. 
It is named by the following rule: 

i^W The half-consonant followed by 
the half-vowel is the name of the 
half -consonant. "^ 



DISCOVERIES 



There are fourteen simple vowel 
sounds in the speech of human beings; 
and there can not, by any possibility, 
be any more than fourteen. 

Twelve of the simple vowel sounds 
possess the quality of being hard, non- 
elastic, and brittle, are produced in 
straight lines and break off abruptly. 

The other two simple vowel sounds — 
number 6 and number 12— possess the 
quality of being soft, flexible and plia- 
ble, so that either one of the two soft 
and plastic vowels can be plastered or 
molded onto the last end of the hard 
vowels, where they will adhere. 

A compound vowel sound is a hard 
and brittle vowel sound abruptly bro- 
ken off, with a soft and plastic vowel 
sound molded upon it, so that the two 
sounds seem to be but one sound. 

The two soft and plastic vowels can 
be molded upon each other so that the 
TWO soft sounds will seem to be but 

ONE. 

There are twelve compound vowel 
sounds ending with vowel number six ; 
that is to say, have their ending in " e," 
as in me, he, we, be, she, see, key ; and 
there can be no more than twelve. 

There are twelve compound vowel 
sounds ending in vowel number twelve; 
that is to say, they have their ending 
in " oo," as in too, boo, who, boot, boom, 
loot, mood, pool, woo; and there can be 
no more than twelve. 

It is utterly impossible for human 
beings to sound any kind or variety 
of compound vowels other than the 
12 + 12 = 24 just above named. 

The old letter Y, with its name 
changed to ye, stands for the soft and 
plastic vowel number six, ^hen it is 
plastered, or coned, upon the first end 
of any hard and brittle vowel. 

The old letter W, with its name 
changed to we, stands for the soft and 
plastic vowel number twelve, when it 
is combined with the first end of any 
hard and brittle vowel. 

The old letters Y and W have gen- 
erally been considered consonants and 
they will still be used and handled as 
CONSONANTS, although in point of actual 
fact they are the representatives of 



THOSE SAME TWO SOFT AND PLASTIC VOW- 
ELS that have deceived and baflfled lin- 
guists and philologists during all the 
ages that are gone. 

All of these compound vowel sounds 
are in actual use at the present time 
by millions of people, among the several 
nations and tribes in many and various 
parts of the earth. 

No ONE language on THE EARTH re- 
quires the use of all of the 24 com- 
pound vowel sounds ; but some of the 
languages require the use of only three 
OR FOUR of them, others only six or 
SEVEN of them, and our own Anglo- 
Saxon tongue requires the use of only 
FIVE of them. 

In tabulating the twelve compound 
vowels ending in " e," as in me, he, be, 
she, see, key, we, and placing them all 
in their proper positions, this rule is 
used: 

E^"On the second line, and immedi- 
ately under the table of fourteen 
simple vowels, place each compound 
vowel DIRECTLY UNDER the simple vow- 
el which forms the first half of the 
compound."^ 

In tabulating the twelve compound 
vowels ending in " oo," as in too, boo, 
who, boot, boom, loot, mood, pool, woo, 
and placing them in their proper posi- 
tions, this rule is used : 

(^^^On the third line, under the table 
of fourteen simple vowels, place each 
compound vowel directly under the 
simple vowel which forms the FIRST 
half of the compound. 

Since there are 24 compound vowels 
for ALL the world, and since our lan- 
guage requires only five of them, it 
follows that there are 24—5=19 of 
them used in other languages but not 
required in our own; and therefore we 
may leave nineteen blank spaces in 
the Universal Table and still have all 
the letters we need for our own use. 

And since there are 14 simple vowels 
and 28 consonants and 5 compound 
vowels used by our own people, it fol- 
lows that we need 14 + 28-}- 5, which 
makes a total of forty-seven letters ; 
and if we add 47 to the 19 blanks, we 



AND SCIENCE OF SPELLING 



43 



have a total of 66 for the entire earth; 
which is exactly equal to the total num- 
ber of SPEECH SOUNDS that human be- 
ings are capable of producing and are 
using every day. 

This very simple and very easy plan 
for filling the nineteen blank spaces 

WITH MARKED LETTERS enables the WHOLE 

WORLD to use the alfabet without add- 
ing any more main letters or symbol 
outlines to it; and the whole world 



will need only forty-seven letters— 
forty-seven symbol outlines— for wri- 
ing and printing its sixty-six sounds, 
I and for spelling its five millions of 
I words ; that is to say, we can make one 
i SHORT, straight DASH, and use it nine- 
teen TIMES so as to make the alfabet 
I stand for sixty-six sounds and really 
be, IN ACTUAL FACT, an alfabet of sixty- 
six letters, while it appears to be an 
j alfabet of only forty-seven letters. 



NUMBERING 



Only one rule was followed in num- 
bering each and all of the letters or 
symbols in this entire alfabet for all 
nations; and the numbering is an 
important and prominent feature of 
this Universal System. Each letter 
will carry with it the same sound, the 
same shape, the same name, and the 
SAME serial number all over the earth, 
wheresoever it may go. Here is the 
rule for numbering : 

(5^" First of all, number the fourteen 
simple vowels in their natural and 



serial order from one to fourteen ; next 
continue the serial order numbering 
so as to cover and include all of the 
consonants on the fourth and fifth 
lines of the scientific table, beginning 
with fifteen ; then, last of all, continue 
the serial order numbering so as to 
cover and include all of the compound 
vowels on the second and third lines of 
the table, ending with number sixty- 
six, which is the total number of 
speech sounds that human beings are 
capable of producing.' 



RULES FOR MARKING THE COMPOUND VOWELS AND 
FOR FILLING THE BLANK SPACES 



There are two short rules that will 
explain all of the marks or dashes 
that will, from time to time, appear 
over and under many of the simple 
vowels in the printed words of many 
languages; and the same two short 
rules will help the student to fill any 
or all of the spaces left blank in the 
Universal Alfabet as follows : 

l^W Rule First: A short horizontal 
line, or dash, placed over any one of 
the fourteen simple vowels, always 
adds e, as in me, he, be, she, see, key, 
we, to that simple vowel and changes it 
into a COMPOUND vowel ending in e, as 
in me, he, be, she, see, key, we. 135 

This Rule First enables any student 
in any country to bring any or all of 
the letters from the first line of vowels 
down onto the second line and fill any 
or all of the nine blank spaces found 
upon that line. 

CI^" Rule Second: A short horizon- 
tal line or dash placed under any one 
of the fourteen simple vowels always 
ADDS 00, as in too, boo, who, boot, boom. 



loot, mood, woo, to that simple vowel; 
and changes it into a compound vowel 
ending in oo, as in too, boo, who, boot, 
boom, loot, mood, woo. 

This Rule Second enables any stu- 
dent to bring any or all of the letters 
from the first line of vowels down onto 
the third line and fill any or all of 
the ten blank spaces found upon that 
line. 

And these two rules together enable 
any student in any country to read and 
pronounce, at sight, any and every 
word he may see printed in any for- 
eign OR strange language, and to fill 
all of the NINETEEN blank spaces that 
are found in the Universal Alfabet as 
it is printed in this Fonetic Primer, 
and thus complete the entire Table 
of Letters for All Nations, and All 
Languages, without adding any new, 
large characters, or symbols; because, 
when this is done all of the nineteen 
BLANK SPACES wiU be filled from the 
first line and the only new feature 



44 



STORY'S FONETIC PRIMER 



will be the short dash over them or 
UNDER them, the meaning of which will 
be always and everywhere well known. 

These forty-seven letters —and the 

ONE SHORT DASH — the ONE STRAIGHT 
MARK —WILL DO THE WORK REQUIRED BY 



THE WHOLE WORLD FASTER, NEATEl 

CHEAPER AND BETTER than any othel] 
system ever devised. It is the net n 

suit of SIXTY-TWO SEPARATE AND INDI 
PENDENT DISCOVERIES AND INVENTIONS^ 

and more than forty years of laboi 

AND EXPERIMENT, 



ADVICE TO THE STUDENT 



The student is advised to use the 
TABLE OF MODELS frequently for spell- 
ing SYLLABLES as Well as short words. 
This Table of Models ranks next in 
value to the Universal Alfabet itself, 
is the net result of twenty-two separate 
and independent discoveries and inven- 
tions, and furnishes the pattern or 
MODEL for spelling every word of one 

SYLLABLE and EVERY SYLLABLE THAT 
HUMAN BEINGS ARE CAPABLE OF PRONOUNC- 
ING. 

^^^ The student may select long 
words of two, three, or four syllables, 
divide them in the most natural and 
easy way, then spell each syllable, 
just the same as if it were a short 
WORD ; and then pronounce all of the 
syllables forming the whole word."^ 

After a few hours practice in this 



way, with the Table of Models in full 
VIEW, the spelling of long words will 
become natural and easy, and the 
student will be able to spell every 
word that he can distinctly hear 
and accurately pronounce without 
consulting any book. The Fonetic 
Primer, or the Fonetic Charts, are the 
only " spelling books " the student will 
ever need. 

It is taken for granted that the stu- 
dent, by this time, is familiar with the 
FIRST ten models and is able to handle 
with ease the first four rules for spell- 
ing: namely. Rule First, Rule Second, 
Rule Third, and Rule Fourth Limited, 
and is able to explain them to other 
students. 

With this understanding we now pre- 
sent 



RULE FOURTH UNLIMITED, FOR SPELLING 



'^^^ When any consonant stands be- 
fore any other consonant, in the same 
syllable or in the same short word, the 
first consonant may be blended with 
the next one by sounding the first 
and NAMING THE NEXT ONE in the same 
breath, as if the two consonants were 
but ONE ; then name or blend the re- 
maining letters, and then pronounce 
the syllable or the short word. °^J1 

Remember that Rule First is not 
superseded nor abolished. It is still 
USED AND APPLIED in those parts of the 
word where blending is not applied. 

This blending of two consonants 
may be done before the vowel or after 
the vowel, and sometimes both before 

AND after THE VOWEL. 

It very frequently happens that Rule 
Fourth Unlimited and Rule Second 
can both be used and applied in the 



same syllable or the same short word. 

It also very frequently happens that 
Rule Fourth Unlimited and Rule Third 
can both be used and applied in the 
SAME syllable or the same short word. 

This Unlimited Rule Fourth gives to 
the student a wide field of liberty in 
spelling and adds a high percentage 
to his SPEED in word building. It is 
also a very easy and very natural step 
leading up to that great achievement, 

CORRECT READING. 

This Rule Fourth Unlimited can be 
used to good advantage in words of 
the Seventh Class and the Eleventh 
Class, and in several other classes 
which the student will very soon be 
able to select and determine for him- 
self. It can be used in many hundreds 
of short words and many thousands of 
syllables.

RULE FIFTH FOR SPELLING 



I^^^COMBINE THREE LETTERS and SOUND 

them in one breath as if the three let- 
ters were but one letter, and remember 
that in all cases one of the three com- 
bined letters must be a vowel. "^^ 

If there is a consonant, or consonants, 
standing before the three letters which 
you wish to combine, then this is the 
rule: [!I^°Name each of the consonants 
one or two —that are standing before 
the combined three, then sound the 
combined three as if the three letters 
were but one letter, then name each of 
the remaining letters — if any — and 
then PRONOUNCE the syllable or the 
short word.^pD 

Examples in words of the 7th class:— 
t-rot, k-lok, f-roq, t-rap, t-rax, b-raq, 
k-rax, h-rax, s-lab, q-lum, s-luq, t-rad, 
t-ran. If the three letters which you 
wish to combine come first and the odd 
consonant or consonants come after 
them, then this is the rule : — 

JI^^SouND the three combined letters 
as if the three letters were but one 
letter, then name each of the remain- 
ing consonants^one or two, — and then 
PRONOUNCE the syllable or the short 
word.'"^ 

Examples in words of the 7th class: — 
tro-t, klo-k, fro-q, tra-p, tra-x, bra-q, 
kra-x, lira-x, sla-b, qlu-m, stu-ii, tra-d, 
tra-n. Remember that spelling a syl- 
lable is just exactly the same as spell- 
ing a short word of one syllable. The 
work is the same. 

Now, since there are three letters to 
be combined and one of them must be 
a vowel or a compound vowel, it fol- 
lows as a mathematical necessity that 
the combination must take one of the 
following three forms : — 

First form = a consonant, a vowel 
and a consonant, after model number 
four = XOX. 



Second FORM=two consonants and a 
vowel, after model number five=XXO. 

Third FORM=a vowel and two conso- 
nants, after model number six = OXX. 

These three forms of the combination 
give the student a variety and latitude 
of CHOICE and enable him to make his 
own selection and choose his own style 
of completing the syllable or the short 
word. 

It follows as a mathematical fact 
that this rule for Combining Three 
Letters can not be applied to any of 
the first six classes of syllables or 
short words, but may be applied to the 
seventh class of words and syllables 
and to all of the following classes of 
words and syllables down to and in- 
cluding the sixteenth class. 

This rule fifth for combining does 
not necessarily supersede any of the 

SPELLING AND BLENDING, but giveS the 

student a choice to either name, blend 
OR combine letters, or he can sometimes 
both BLEND and COMBINE letters in the 
same syllable, or the same short word. 

This Rule Fifth for combining three 
letters shortens and simplifies the work 
of spelling in many thousands of syl- 
lables and a great many short words, 
and approaches still nearer and nearer 

to AUDIBLE READING. 

Children while spelling, blending 
and combining, are at the same time 
LEARNING TO READ without being fully 
aware of the fact. 

(((Teachers are advised to let the 
children practice blending and com- 
bining—in CONCERT — AN HOUR AT A TIME. 
Let all the children in the whole school 
join in the exercise — all together— all 
at one time. They like this kind of 

CONCERT WORK.)))

WORDS OF THE SIXTEENTH CLASS 



There are only about a dozen English 
and American words of the sixteenth 
class, and a very small number of the 
same in any other language. They are 
spelled with seven letters, after model

No one can pronounce a w ord of one 
syllable which contains less than one 
sound or more than seven sounds — 
the lowest and the highest limits — 



and in each and every case there must 
be one vowel, or compound vowel, and 
NO more than one; and therefore model 
number sixteen represents the extreme 
limit of words of one syllable; because 
this model has three consonants be- 
fore the vowel and three consonants 
after the vowel, making a total of 
seven sounds, which is the utmost 

LIMIT OF the speech CAPACITY OF HUMAN 
BEINGS. 

The student already knows that there 
ARE sixteen models for word building 
and for syllable construction; and he 
now knows the reason why there can 
be no more than sixteen. All the 
words and all the syllables, in the 
speeches of all the world, can be spelled 
upon these sixteen models. 



SMALL FRACTIONS 



In every exact science there are 
always a few small fractions or frag- 
ments that seem to render the totals 
irregular or to contradict the rules. 
A very similar state of facts is found 
in the Science of Spelling. 

There are about half a dozen words, 
more or less, in our language that re- 
quire the use of four consonants after 
the vowel; but never more than a total 
of seven sounds. 

One of these words belongs to the 
loth class (OX XX), the proper name, 
or proper noun, Ernst, which takes four 
consonants after the vowel, and is 
spelled Urnst. 



Three more of these words belong to 
the 13th class (XOXXX) and are 
spelled as follows, each one of them 
demanding four consonants after the 
vowel : Warldz = worlds, bursts = 
bursts, bursts = thirsts. There may 
be a very few more such words; and 
possibly one or two in the 15th class, 
(XXOXXX). 

But there are not more than a total 
of THIRTY OR FORTY such words in all 
of the l.inguages of the entire world, 
and it was not necessary to enlarge the 
Table of Models in order to take them 
in. 



RULE SIX FOR SPELLING 



Unite four letters and sound 
the united four as if they were but one 
letter, and remember that in all cases 
one of the united four letters must 
always be a vowel or a compound 
vowel. "^ 

If there is a consonant or consonants 
standing before the four letters you 
wish to unite, then this is the rule : 

E^" Name each of the consonants — 
one or two —that are standing before 
the united four letters, then sound the 
united four letters as if the four let- 
ters were but one letter, then name 
each of the remaining consonants— if 
any —and then pronounce the syllable 
or the short word.'^'gn 



Examples from the 11th class of 
words:— t-rots, p-ropt, b-lots, b-lodt, 
h-robd, t-ropt, d-raqd, p-rans, b-raqd, 
b-last, k-raxt, k-raqk. 

If the four letters which you wish to 
unite come first and the odd conso- 
nant or consonants follow after them, 
then this is the rule : 

{^^° Sound the four united letters as 
if the four letters were but one letter, 
then name each of the remaining con- 
sonants—if any —and then pronounce 
the syllable or the short word."^ 

Examples from the 11th class of 
words :—trot-s, prop-t, blot-s, blod-t, 
Urob-d, trap-t, draq-d, pran-s, blas-t, 
krax-t, kraii-k.

STORY'S FONETIC PRIMER 



Since there are four letters to be 
united, it follows as a mathematical 
fact that the united four letters may 
take any one of the following four 
forms : 

First form XXOX Third form XXXO 
Second formXOXX|FourthformOXXX 

This Rule Six for spelling can not 
be applied to any of the first ten 
classes of syllables or short words, 
but may be applied to the eleventh 
class — which is very numerous — and 

to ALL OF THE REMAINING CLASSES down 

to and including the sixteenth class. 

This rule number six for uniting 
letters is not intended to supersede or 
do away with any of the first five rules 
for Sounding, Naming, Blending and 
Combining in the process of word-con- 
struction, or word-building; nor is it 
considered as a very important rule. 
The last six classes of short words 
and syllables — the 11th to the 16th 



inclusive — can be almost as well and 
almost as rapidly handled by the five 
preceding rules for spelling, blend- 
ing and combining, but this plan of 
uniting four letters— sounded as one 
— gives the school a very useful exer- 
cise, and leads the students rapidly 
along toward word-finishing or word- 
completing, which ends in rapidly pro- 
nouncing the words at sight, which is 

AUDIBLE READING. 

So that each and every step taken by 
the student in the Science of Spelling 
and every rule given to him for the 
mastery of the Universal Alfabet, is 

PLAIN, SIMPLE, NATURAL AND EASY, and 

leads him on gradually to the mastery 
OF the language— so gradually that 
almost before he is aware of it he be- 
comes a correct and ready reader and 
will not hesitate to read out loud in 

THE presence OF OTHER PEOPLE. He is 

then ready to master any branch of 
learning upon which he may fix his 
mind and attention. 



INTER-LINGUAL AND UNIVERSAL TYPE CASES 



Having invented an alfabet for the 
use of the whole world, containing a 
table of 47 letters, and in a certain 
qualified sense a table of 66 letters, to 
be used hereafter in the place of the 
old Romanic Alfabet of 26 letters, and 
all of the other so-called alfabets, it 
became at once necessary to provide 
NEW TYPE-c\SES, for the use of the 
PRINTERS of the whole world, because 
the NEW TYPES could not be laid in the 
OLD oases and because the new oases 
must be so made as to be used by the 

PRINTERS OF ALL NATIONS! that is to Say, 

that the type-cases of the English and 
American language must also be at the 
same time the type-cases for the 
German, the French, the Spanish, the 
Russian and all other languages, all 
over the earth. 

After quite an extensive and very 
careful examination of the type-cases 
in many printing plants, the author of 
this book built the necessary type- 
cases to hold the types for printing 
the UNIVERSAL ALFABET, which means 
the necessary types for printing all the 
words of all the languages spoken upon 
this earth. He secured several copy- 
rights upon these type-cases, and 
applied for a patent upon them. They 
are made in "standard sizes" and will 
fit into any of the slides in any com- 
posing room in any printing plant in 
America. 

Those nineteen compound vowel 
types that are very rarely used in the 
English and American language (and 



never used except when needed to 
spell some foreign word, or to spell 
some BROGUE, or some mispronounced 
word in our own language), are now laid 
away in the rare case, for occasional 
use. The rare case contains six extra 
small boxes, so that the English and 
American printers — if they wish to do 
so — can take out letter number 11 — 
used only in one word — and the two 
defective aspirates — number 40 and 
number 42 — and place them in the 
rare-case, out of the way, leaving them- 
selves 44 letters for everyday use. 

The printers of other nations can do 
the same thing, take out those letters 
in their regular cases which they very 
seldom use, and lay them in the rare 
CASE, out of the way, and leave them- 
selves 42 to 48 — more or less — for 
everyday use. 

One of the most important features 
of this inter-lingual and inter-national 
system of spelling, and this inter- 
lingual and inter-national system of 
printing is its unexpected simplicity 
as well as its mathematical accuracy. 

All the letters in the alfabet of the 
Science of Spelling are numbered, and 
the boxes or subdivisions in the type 
cases are also numbered. Letter No. 
15 in the alfabet is "t" " T," and it is 
placed in box No. 15 in the type cases; 
capital T is placed in the box No. 15 in 
the upper case, and small t is placed 
in No. 15 in the lower case. All the 
other types are located in the type 
cases in the same way.

This book was set in types from a pair of these cases, and the typesetter after 
one hour's practice set the types as rapidly as from the old cases. 

One of the most important features of this entire Science of Spelling and 
Inter-Lingual System of Printing is its marvelous simplicity in all of its details.

FOREIGN LANGUAGES 



What is the use of spending three 
OR FOUR YEARS iu learning a foreign 
language when you can just as easily 
learn the same foreign language in 
ONE YEAR — and learn it better ? 

If the professors, teachers and tutors 
in our academies, colleges and univers- 
ities will use the Universal Alfabet 
and the Science of Spelling in their 
class-rooms, their classes of students 
will master the foreign language three 
OR FOUR TIMES FASTER than they can by 
any other possible means, because the 
master can give the exact pronuncia- 
tion of the foreign word and spell and 
write it in the new way, so that the 
learner can hear the word with his 
EARS and also see the same word with 
his eyes, written in a way that is 
absolutely correct and that will help 
to impress the sounds of the word upon 
his mind and memory forever —as if 
the sounds of the word were photo- 
graphed for his eyes to see. 

If we wish to travel in foreign lands 
and be able to converse with the peo- 
ple who live in those foreign lands, in 
their own languages, let us begin at once 



to use the Universal System of spelling, 
writing and printing that will enable us 
to master those foreign languages in 
the shortest possible time and with 
the least possible outlay of labor and 
money. 

Moreover, let us extend a friendly 
greeting to the alien people from so 
many far-away countries, who are com- 
ing to our prosperous shores at the 
rate of more than a million a year, 
and offer to them the easiest, cheap- 
est, shortest and best method of 
learning our own language, in order 
that they may meet, mingle and con- 
verse with our people, and become 
first-class American citizens in the 
shortest possible time. With the Uni- 
versal Alfabet and the Science of 
Spelling placed in their hands, they 
will learn more of our language in one 
YEAR than they can at the present 
time in three or four years. This will 
help to unify and harmonize the multi- 
tude of conflicting habits of thought 
and shades of previous opinion among 
our eighty-three "millions of Industrious 
people. 



AND SCIENCE OF SPELLING

THIS PRIMER IS A SPELLING DICTIONARY 



All of the 5,800 words of one syllable 
printed in this book arc arranged by- 
classes, in the new order of succession, 
which they will have in the proposed 
new Fonetic Dictionary, whenever the 
said dictionary may be printed. 

Each and every one of the words is 
placed in its proper location, just where 
it belongs, and where the student can 
EASILY FIND IT, by following the new 
and Universal Alfabetic Order of 
Succession. 

When the student has found the 
FONETIC word, in the left-hand column, 
he has only to cast his eye over to the 
right-hand column, to find the "old 
spellings" of the very same word; so 
that this little Fonetic Primer becomes 
at once a Spelling Dictionary for both 
systems— the new and the old— contain- 
ing all of the short words — or words 
of one syllable — in the English and 
American language. 

The fonetic column gives the exact 



pronunciation of the word wanted, and 
the column of chaos gives the "old 
spellings" of the same word. 

The time and labor required in "hunt- 
ing up" words and "finding" them for 
the purpose of learning how to spell 
them are herein greatly reduced. 

With the aid of this Universal Sys- 
tem any one can find a word in this book 
in about one fourth or one fifth of 
the time he spends in finding the same 
word in any of the old dictionaries. 
This is another great saving or gain. 

When other people begin to use this 
inter-lingual, inter-national and Uni- 
versal System of Spelling, they will, 
each and all of them, use the same 
alfabet of letters and classify their 
short words upon the same table of 
MODELS, and arrange the words in the 
same new and Universal Order of Suc- 
cession, where any student can "find 
the word wanted" in less than one 

minute of TIME.

CHAOS 

The CITY OF Chicago, with its two 
millions of people, would not be so 
presumptuous as to adopt and use 
the Universal Alfabet and the Science 
of Spelling in its 6,000 schools for the 
good of its 400,000 school children, 
unless it is generally understood that 
all of the other great cities are intend- 
ing to do the same thing soon. 

Even the great State of Illinois 
could not think of adopting and using 
a better alfabet and a plainer, simpler, 
easier, faster and better system of 
spelling, than the old, clumsy, pagan 
method — which it is now compelled 
by long habit and custom to use — 
unless the state could have some 
reliable assurance that all of the other 
great states were also going to begin 
using the shorter, simpler, plainer, 
cheaper and better way. 

It follows, therefore, that no city 
and no state, and no one community 
can or will undertake to introduce 
this simplest and most useful of all 
of the time and labor-saving discover- 
ies that has come to the front in a 
thousand years, unless the sanction 
and approval of the nation is first 
obtained. The Great Republic must 

TAKE the first STEP. 

The United States of America must 
first give to the people some kind of 
sanction, approval and assurance that 
the faster, cheaper and vastly better 
system— after due test and fair trial 
—is likely to become the chosen and 
adopted system of this greatest of 
nations. 

When the Universal System is final- 
ly adopted — if it ever can be adopted — 
it must be done by a popular vote of 
all of our 83,000,000 of Americans, 
duly recorded at the ballot box. 

The only way in which this great 
nation can make its sanction and ap- 
proval of the system effective, must 
be by an act of congress appropri- 
ating money from the national treas- 
ury to pay all of the preliminary 
expenses of a thorough test and a care- 
ful trial of the Universal System, in 
the presence of intelligent people who 
will be, and must be, the final judges 
of its measureless worth. 

There is no logic and no kind of 
reasoning that can evade or over- 
throw or refute the foregoing state- 
ments. They are solid as the hills. 
The Nation Must Lead.

CHAOS 

Tell me not, in mournful numbers, 
" Life is but an empty dream! " 

For tbe soul is dead tbat slumbers. 
And things are not what they seem. 

Life is real! life is earnest! 

And the grave is not its goal; 
" Dust thou art, to dust returnest," 

Was not spoken of the soul. 

Not enjoyment, and not sorrow. 
Is our destined end or way; 

But to act, that each to-morrow 
Find us farther than to-day. 

Art is long, and Time is fleeting. 
And our hearts, though stout and 
brave. 

Still, like muffled drums, are beating 
Funeral marches to the grave. 

In the world's broad field of battle, 

In the bivouac of Life, 
Be not like dumb, driven cattle ! 

Be a hero in the strife ! 

Trust no Future, howe'er pleasant ! 

Let the dead Past bury its dead ! 
Act,— act in the living Present ! 

Heart within, and God o'erhead. 

Lives of great men all remind us 
We can make our lives sublime, 

And, departing, leave behind us 
Footprints on the sands of time; 

Footprints that perhaps another. 
Sailing o'er life's solemn main, 

A forlorn and shipwrecked brother, 
Seeing, shall take heart again. 

Let us, then, be up and doing, 

With a heart for any fate; 
Still achieving, still pursuing, 

Learn to labor and to wait. 

H. W. Longfellow.
